Butt Injections Nearly Killed Yet Another Woman

The skin of this woman got purple in color and started peeling off like an onion peel. The wretched lady nearly died. All this was the result of two procedures aimed at butt augmentation, which cost $6,000, while the treatment of the consequences cost $70,000.


An American woman Oscarina Busse decided to augment her buttocks by injecting fillers. This woman wanted to save money and did not address certified plastic surgeons; she had both of her injections made by illegal practitioners. The surgeries cost this hairdresser $6,000 (the cost of the procedures in a usual clinic would be about $13,000). In addition, the woman was drawn by the promise that the recovery period after the injections would be significantly shorter.

Oscarina is Dominican by ethnicity, so she has a curvaceous body, but she does not have a truly impressive butt. As the woman wanted to get it, she was determined to undergo butt augmentation. The first session was held in 2002, and the second one – in 2009. The latest injection was nearly fatal. After 6 months, the skin became purple, and the substance in the buttocks began to devour her flesh.

Butt augmentation in illegal clinics is often conducted with mineral oil or non-medical silicone, but some of the “crafty” practitioners inject the unhappy women with the means for repairing punctured tires, Fix-A-Flat, or even cement with glue. Oscarina knows exactly what she was injected. The majority of the victims of such pseudo-doctors face the problems 5-10 years after the injection, but this woman began to suffer from them after six months.

Many doctors refused to treat her for fear that it would result in the patient’s death. Oscarina found a plastic surgeon from Los Angeles, Dr. Constantino Mendieta, who specializes in the procedures on buttocks. He stated that the injections destroyed the tissues in the buttocks, and the damage could never be recovered again. The woman is still treated and has already spent more than $70,000 on various operations and procedures. Significant amounts of tissue have been removed, but it is still too early to speak about the completion of her treatment. The surgeon calls Oscarina’s case one of the worst that he has observed in his career.
